Correct use: "consists of" vs "consists in"
I've been unable to get a straight answer to this anywhere else, but I know that mefi has more than its fair share of spelling/grammar/usage nazis, so I ask you: what's the deal with "consists of"
and "consists in"
? Google gives plenty of examples of both; is there a rule?
